Subject: Fantastic show.
Special mention should be made of this Drums. Those are howler monkeys you can hear calling. Who made that field recording? It sounds like whoever it was is trying to call to the monkeys & get them to call back.

Subject: Agree...Hot Fire on the Mtn.
Before the final ascent in Fire, Jerry sings "Let it burn, let it burn, let it burn". That's one of my favorite moments.

Subject: One of my favs...
This is one of the most unique Scarlet>Fires out there. The boys really developed their sound by the Spring of '78 and these April shows are all a real treat. Bobby is playing with his slide, Jerry's Wolf guitar sound is at it's peak, Donna and Keith are sounding better than ever since their '77 tours. This Scarlet>Fire is on of the best of '78, maybe not as good as 5/21/77 but close. Just listen to the shear inspiration on the Fire, Jerry is using my favorite guitar effects(the Mutron Octave divider and envelope filter)and is ripping notes all over the scales. The Werewolves of London was a brief but much loved addition to their encore slot, much better than hearing a Johnny B. Goode haha.

This sound is better than any of the other sources. See for yourself!

Subject: Nice fire transition Donna/Billy sound awesome
Not my favorite Scarlet Fire transition, but pretty darn close. I had this tape in high school and would always listen to it on my walkman while cutting the grass! It was labeled the Dekalb IL show obviously by error...I'm glad i located it....the Terrapin is nice and Im lucky to have had this show as my only bootleg as a new fan back in 94. My first and last show was 10-07-94. Wish i was around for the good ol days..jeff

Subject: Take A Look At Poor Peter
One of the best shows of 1978 from the great month of April. The whole show is a highlight, but of particular interest is the transition jam from Scarlet to Fire. The Black Peter from this show is one of the best, just spilling over with great blues licks from Mr Garcia & Company. Jerry's vocal work is really nice too. The versions of Ramble On Rose and It Must Have Been The Roses are also stand outs.
The sound quality of this recording/transfer is top shelf!

Subject: where's the FOB?
i used to have a crisp, wide ranging aud of this most excellent show. it would add to the spectrum to have one. any posters?

gotta love that second set. it is definitely a blueprint for the 80s, but with that lush 78 sound.

Subject: hot damn
check out the promised, the ramble on rose, the disco jam into me & my uncle, the transition into big river....

these guys are having a blast and they take every song up a notch, just stepping it up!

this might be the best show of 1978
